White people are no longer racist, and even if they were, it‚Äôs the fault of racist black people!
Fox News contributor: Angry blacks to blame for rise in ‚ÄėAmerican Anglo-Saxon‚Äô racism
A Christian radio host insisted last week that white people were no longer racist, and even if they were, it‚Äôs the fault of racist black people.
Sandy Rios, of American Family Radio, was offended when a listener suggested she was racist toward black people, who she blamed for inciting white racism.
‚ÄúI think the racist garbage coming from the ‚ÄĒ uh, a lot of blacks right now who are just filled with bitterness and rage is just amazing to me,‚ÄĚ Rios said. ‚ÄúIt is racism, I am seeing it constantly here in D.C., you know, I think ‚ÄĒ and it‚Äôs causing white citizens to become more racist than they ever were.‚ÄĚ
She continued, referring to white people using the term for Germanic tribes that once dominated England and is now generally associated with British-American Protestants and white supremacists.
‚ÄúI think for the most part, the American Anglo-Saxon crew really has moved past racism, they did it quite a long time ago,‚ÄĚ she said.
Rios, a Fox News contributor, said racism had demonstrably ended because segregation was no longer legally enforced and the nation had elected a black president.
‚ÄúI mean, they did elect Barack Obama twice, so I think it‚Äôs not nearly the issue in the white community that it was in the 50s, sure it isn‚Äôt, or the 60s ‚Äď it just isn‚Äôt,‚ÄĚ she said. ‚ÄúBut it seems to be raging, racism seems to be absolutely raging in the black community.‚ÄĚ
She blamed this rise of racist feelings among whites on this same black president who signaled the end of American racism.
‚ÄúI think what‚Äôs causing it is people like Barack Obama and (Attorney General) Eric Holder, who can‚Äôt say enough and stir the pot enough to create anger and hatred and bitterness,‚ÄĚ Rios said. ‚ÄúYou know, they do the same thing with women, it‚Äôs the same thing in feminism, that‚Äôs why I‚Äôve never been a feminist. I hate feminism.‚ÄĚ
